If you've liked the comic book adventures of Javier Herndez's undead mariachi of justice, this is a very faithful translation onto the screen. Valderama wears the iconic face paint of El Muerto throughout the whole film, too, which is impressive. Too many pretty boys don't want to do superhero roles because the masks hide their features. Not the case here.

The illustrated credit sequence is first rate, and Billy Drago is creepy as hell, too!

The Dead One (Brian Cox, 2007)

Most people know Wilder Valderrama as Fez from the long-running sitcom That 70s Show. I always hated it, so I had no clue who he was when I popped this disc into the player. I figure now, though, that there will be a lot of surprised Fez fans who pick up this disc and find Valderrama taking a dramatic, if pathetically cheesy, turn. (Someone else must have thought Valderrama was superhero material; later that year, he also appeared as the title character in Stan Lee's The Condor.)

Valderrama plays Diego de la Muerte, a guy living in East L. A. On his way to a Day of the Dead festival, his car crashes and he is killed. Something supernatural took notice of his costume for the party, though, which included a version of the Aztec God of Death's tattoo painted on him, and he is resurrected as El Muerto, an undead minion of that same God of Death, who's looking for a sacrifice. Of course, that sacrifice turns out to be Diego's lady love, Maria (Colombian actress Angie Cepeda, recently of Love in the Time of Cholera).

Based on Javier Hernandez' comic book El Muerto, The Dead One, a movie that got absolutely no push in Hollywood, gives lie to the idea that anyone could make any sort of novel based on a comic in the mid-nineties and have a hit on their hands. Technically, this should remind you of just about every other comic book movie you've seen in the past few years, and the acting is at about the same level you'd expect from a comic book movie that doesn't have any real ambition to transcend the genre (this is far more The Punisher than it is Sin City). So why wasn't it the subject of yet another major media push by the Hollywood production machine? In a word, script. If something could go wrong with a script, it went wrong here.

It seems it is a deeper story than a simple attempt of the pagan Aztec god to return the Earth by getting hearts of three humans in run of three days consequently, helped by collaborators chosen and awaiting his command for.

If religious philosophy was left aside, a story is a mix of reality with zombie-horror actions peppered with human love overcoming all obstacles, such a watching-for-watching of the Latino-Americans in Los Angeles,the USA, inextricably linked with their natural Aztec roots and ancient traditions.

What I did personally wrong was watching it after midnight during rainy, windy night.

While some liberties are taken with the original comic book "El Muerto", the innovations are true to the spirit of the book. Wilder Valderrama 's performace, for those used to seeing him in "That 70's Show" was a pleasant surprise and really conveyed a depth and range I hadn't seen before.

The budget is obviously not huge, but it fits really well with those who have come to appreciate Javier Hernandez's style of story telling. This is one of the reasons I love seeing Indie film, these 'underappreciated' gems that are far better than most theatrically released fare.
